Saab Aviocomp and Embraer sign Service Center Agreement

Saab Aviocomp AB has signed an agreement with Embraer Aviation
International under which it becomes an authorized service center for
the maintenance of components installed on aircraft manufactured by
Embraer, primarily ERJ135/140/145 and EMB120 Brasilia.

"We are pleased that Embraer has selected Saab Aviocomp to provide
aircraft component maintenance services for themselves and their
customers' aircraft," says Jan-Ingvar Johansson, President of Saab
Aviocomp AB.
"This agreement builds on our position as a leading component service
facility for regional/commuter aircraft in Europe."

Saab Aviocomp AB offers a complete "ERJ nose to tail concept" which has
for example resulted in the recently signed agreement with Skyways
Express for component repair and overhaul services, component
engineering as well as material supply and logistics services for the
airline's fleet of ERJ145.

At present there are more than 150 aircraft of the ERJ135/145 model
delivered in Europe by Embraer. Total orders for European operators
today is 223 aircraft with 130 additional options.

Saab Aviocomp AB is active in the maintenance and repair of components
for medium-sized civil aircraft. Customers consist of a large number of
airline companies around the world.
